Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) is an engineering entrance examination conducted at all India level for admissions into various undergraduate courses and is considered as of the toughest competitive examination across the globe. Mathematics is the most vital section of the JEE Syllabus and is a perfect blend of difficult and easy questions. It is almost unpredictable to guess what could be asked in the exam but there are certain sections from where several questions could be expected.

These topics are explained in the ascending order of their priority:


Coordinate Geometry: This unit is all about understanding geometrical shapes and for many students it is considered as a scoring topic of the JEE mathematics syllabus. This topic can fetch you maximum marks. It is a vast topic and you need to focus mostly on Circle, Parabola, Ellipse, and Hyperbola & Straight Lines. All these topics hold a great importance from the examination point of view but the Straight Line and the Circle are the most important ones.


Calculus: For both JEE Main and JEE Advanced, calculus is comparatively an important section because of its vastness and weightage and you could expect several questions from this topic. You don’t have to worry much about Mathematics in JEE if you develop a strong hold in calculus, therefore, you need to practice a lot and prepare well for this section. Subtopics includes: Limits, Continuity, Differentiability, Relations between Continuity & Differentiability, Methods of Differentiation, Integration, Integration by Parts, Definite Integrals, Remember all the properties of definite integrals, Tangents & Normal, Approximation & Rate Measurement, Monotonicity, Maxima & Minima, Area under curves & Differential Equations.


Vectors & 3D Geometry: This unit is quite conceptual and its weightage is almost similar as Coordinate Geometry & Calculus. It also includes complex numbers along with some parts of geometry. It could be scoring if you understand this section through visualization and develop a strong hold on basics.


Trigonometry: Trigonometry is a vital part of Mathematics in JEE. Trigonometric functions, trigonometric ratios and inverse trigonometry are some of the most imperative topics. Since there are fair amount of questions asked from this topic, therefore, getting the knack of the basic trigonometry could surely benefit a JEE aspirant. You need to memories all the formulas along with their graphs and substitutions for scoring well in this section.


Algebra: Complex Numbers & Quadratic Equations are easy to understand and are favorites for several students. Many times in JEE Advance there were questions from Complex Number merged with vectors. There could be a passage question from matrices & determinants and might be one of the easiest ones to score. There could be few conceptual questions from Permutation & Combination.

Questions from Binomial Theorem and sequence & series are generally formula based and you could easily score marks in this section if you don’t make any silly mistakes.


Keep memorizing and practicing the important formulas and their relations, important substitutions, properties and their practical applications.
